In this note we review recent progresses on the existence problem of extremal and Kähler constant scalar curvature metrics on complex manifolds. The content of this note is an expanded version of author’s talk “Kahler constant scalar curvature metrics on blow ups and resolutions of singularities” given at the INdAM Meeting Complex and Symplectic Geometry, Cortona, June 12–18, 2016.
